The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 will provide over $500 billion of funding for programs to jumpstart the U.S. economy, save and create jobs, and invest in the country’s future. The potential risk of collusion and fraud increases dramatically when large blocks of funds, such as those associated with the Recovery Act, are quickly disbursed.
The Antitrust Division provides extensive resources to help you identify collusion and fraud and to report possible antitrust violations associated with Recovery Act (stimulus package) funding.
